# Answered Essay: Refer to Scenario I. What is the idle time per cycle at WS 5? Engel Appliances has developed a new

Refer to Scenario I. What is the idle time per cycle at WS 5? Engel Appliances has developed a new European – style convection oven that will be made on an assembly line The schedule requites 120 ovens m an 8-hour day The assembly includes seven tasks The table below indicates the performance time and the sequence requirement for each task The cycle time per oven for this assembly operation is 4.0 minutes/oven The precedence diagram is shown below. It shows that the actual number of workstation is 5 along with the specific tusks assigned to the workstations. WS = workstation

Production Line balancing

Workstation Cycle time = Production time per day/output per day

Production time per day = 8 * 3600 seconds = 28,800 seconds

Workstation Cycle time = 28800 / 120 = 240 seconds per product

Based on the precedence diagram for the given line with the processing times for each task has been assigned to workstations shown below,

 Station # Task(s) assigned Total time (Seconds) Station1 A, C 4 Station2 B 3 Station3 D, E 4 Station4 F 2 Station5 G 3

Idle time is the time for the workstation did not execute any work. To calculate the same, we know that Idle time percent = 1- Efficiency

Efficiency for Station1 = (sum of all task times) / (cycle time)

We know, sum of all task times = 2 + 2 = 4 seconds

Cycle time = 4 seconds

Upon substituting, Efficiency = 4 / (4) = 1 = 100%

And, Idle time percent = 1- Efficiency = 1 – 1 = 0%

This clearly shows that there is no idle time for the workstation1 in this case.
